I've been surrounded by fabrics and creativity since I was a baby, no surprises then that this is where I am today!

Hello! I’m Helen and I’m the designer maker behind Cloth & Ink. My designs grow as organically as the inspiration behind them. There’s so much beauty in this world and much of it in the most unexpected places, the tiny flower squeezing up through the crack in the pavement, a flock of birds silhouetted in the sky, a beautiful tree standing proud for decades. My aesthetic is deeply rooted in the beautiful places I’ve travelled and my European heritage. Fabrics have a hint of the Scandinavian style I love with the bold prints and bright colors.

Each print is an original design and begins life as a sketch or loose watercolor. I then develop the graphic repeat using design software. My fabrics are screen printed by hand by a small family business here in the USA, after which I hand make all the wonderful products you can see in my store. I love making. There is nothing more satisfying than creating something with your hands for others to enjoy.

My love of fabrics began at a young age from hanging out in my grandma's fabric store and playing mannequin for my mum who was always sewing something for someone. I guess you the apple doesn't fall far from the tree! I printed my first textiles in high school which led me to studying textile design and production at university. Originally working in clothing manufacturing as a product developer I became disillusioned as I saw my wonderful industry being outsourced overseas. So now I'm thrilled to be part of the handmade movement and support independent, handmade businesses.

My home studio is so full of light and is a haven for my creativity. It’s where you’ll find me at most times of the day, sketching new designs, working on product development, putting my sewing machine through the mill and catching up with emails over a well earned cup of tea.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you find something you love!

All countries import regulations differ and Cloth & Ink does not cover any import charges that may be incurred for international purchases. If you are concerned about this I suggest you contact your postal company before purchasing.

Please note shipping times to Australia and Asia can take at least a couple of weeks via first class mail. If you need your order sooner please contact me to discuss a shipping upgrade.

Pre-Orders: Pre-orders are available on popular products that are currently out of stock. This enables you to reserve one from the new stock. If you have pre-ordered a product please be aware that shipping times given are estimated and are dependent on the arrival of raw materials. I work promptly to fullfil these orders once materials have arrived and orders are filled in turn.

Made-to order: If you have purchased an item made to order, shipping dates will be discussed on an individual basis.
Additional policies and FAQs
CUSTOM ORDERS: I am always happy to make a custom product to fit your needs perfectly. For a custom product in an existing fabric there are no extra charges, for example, a pillow or a lamp shade in a custom size. Custom colors may also be requested on orders over $90. There is also an additional $10 charge to cover costs of custom color fabrics. I ask for a 25% deposit before starting any custom order and this is deducted from the total cost. There will be a 2-3 week lead time on custom orders plus shipping.

COUPON CODES: Coupon codes cannot be used towards a custom order or the purchase of gift cards. Coupon codes may only be used once and are redemable at the checkout. If you have received a coupon code and it does not work please contact me.

Pre-Orders: Pre-orders are available on popular products that are currently out of stock. This enables you to reserve one from the new stock.
